Mark 4:26-29 – How Grows the Kingdom?

Many have attempted over the years to thwart the growth of God’s Kingdom.  Incited by Satan and his minions, men have done all in their power to keep the Gospel from going forth and “infecting” others.  The topic reminds me of numerous examples where – on the surface – it appears as though the God…

Matthew 26:59 – Seeking False Testimony

Can you imagine the animosity the religious leaders had against Jesus?  One could definitively say that His Words certainly didn’t tickle their itching ears.  Quite the opposite.  Every Word Jesus uttered must have grated on them and aroused their sensibilities against Him.  To relate these hateful thoughts and feelings to current events, think about how…

Matthew 24:7 – Don’t Be Deceived

The end of the age is coming.  Jesus warned His disciples that this world as we know it has a finite life span.  Unfortunately, through the years, Jesus’ Words have been twisted and misunderstood.  Among other disputes within the church that have arisen from this teaching is the timing of how all this will occur….

Exodus 13:9 – A Sign on Hand & Forehead

As Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt, God communicated several key points He wanted them to recognize.  They were to remember this day through the eating of unleavened bread and the consecration of their firstborn.  God wanted them to know that He was bringing them into a land of His choosing through…

Exodus 2:3,10 – What Moses Represents

Certain incidents in the Bible often foreshadow other events yet to come.  This idea comprises the concept of typology.  Typology is a symbolic representation, usually showing something in the Old Testament in one manner to portray what will happen in the New Testament. An familiar example of typology may be the Exodus of the Hebrew…

Genesis 39:3 – The Lord’s Favor

When bad things happen to us, we cry out with the age-old question, “Why me, Lord?”  Perhaps we’ve served God well and faithfully and haven’t deviated from Him.  It could even be said that we walked in His righteousness; we’ve lived and been upright in the Name of Christ.  Then the roof caves in over…

Genesis 37:18 and Matthew 12:14 – Conspiracy

When the prophet tells us in Jeremiah 17:9 that “the heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?”, the truth he speaks is from of old, arising from the very first sin and the fall of man.  Yet, many people don’t believe this about the human condition.  They choose to…

Matthew 10:28 – Fear

Jesus knew the price His followers would have to pay in this wicked world.  The promise of eternal life in Him comes with a high cost.  Yet, Jesus said that it’s worth every penny we own and every drop of blood running through our veins.  Who we fear and bow down to, even in great…

Pastor Dana: Vision Sept. 14, 2020

This is a little different from what Pastor Dana has shared previously in that this is a vision rather than a dream.  The message is one that seems to speak directly to the church – the Bride of Christ.  It’s a word that is extremely important for those of us believing that we are part…

Pastor Dana Coverstone – August 24, 2020 Dream

This video by Pastor Dana Coverstone discusses three recent dreams he had, the latest of which was Monday, August 24, 2020.  If you’ve followed Pastor Dana’s dreams, you know that they do not foretell a good ending for this nation.  As we come into the Fall months, the context of the dreams becomes worse and…
